BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 A.M.) – The Turkish Armed Forces have killed scores of Syrian pro-government fighters this week amid their latest push in the Afrin region of Aleppo.

On Saturday, 36 pro-government fighters from the National Defense Forces (NDF) were killed inside the town of Kafr Jina after Turkish warplanes bombed their positions near the front-lines in Afrin.

The Syrian Democratic Forces, a Kurdish-led alliance of militias operating in northern Syria, has confirmed that Turkish airstrikes targeted Syrian forces in the early hours of Saturday morning, but did not provide any information on casualties.

Prior to this bombing, the Turkish Air Force killed 19 NDF fighters at a town near the government’s border with the Afrin region.

Is Syrian gov going to do anything? Or will they just sit down and look at the islamo-fascist wannabe sultan slaughter more Syrians?
